EPQ help


Recommended Posts

I am Deaf and I want to do an EPQ involving Sign language along side my A levels. I can't decide on a simple topic and question. It has to be something I can write 5000+ words on though. Please help. Here's some previous ideas I had: ( they aren't good idt)

1. To what extent does being deaf impact your life and is it right to be classed as a disability?

2. To what extent does being D/deaf or HOH impact your life, does this have positive and negative impacts and is sign language necessary to learn?

3. How difficult is it to learn sign language for a deaf person?

please help. I have to submit my topic in 2 days.

I am doing a similar thing for my epq, I think all these topics would be good in terms of having a lot of different opinions and point of views. However in my opinion i think the first option or sort of area/theme would be a good idea as there, from what i have researched, are a lot of differing ideas and almost controversy on the topic depending on the persons views or maybe even from where there from which I think could be interesting to research. Then again they all, in my opinion, would be good areas to focus on :) (i might be a bit too late but i hope it goes well)

As it's previously been said, all the topics listed are great topics to look into. I find the first one very interesting as you can discuss not only your own view points surrounding this subject, but you can also include those of others and compare them - you could even compare the opinions of those outside of the the D/deaf community. It's also a good one to compare and provide data and discuss that data, e.g. you could do surveys with it as well! Hope you can figure out what you'd like to do and that it goes well for you! 🙂

    • Hiya, I've also included this in my intro post but I'm an early years practitioner who has experience working with deaf children and looking to expand my knowledge.
    • Hiya I'm Lana and I've worked 1:1 with a school aged deaf child during my career as an early years practitioner. I'm now working with a baby who is deaf and looking to expand my knowledge even further so they get the best start in life possible. 
    • Hello Carole    I would love to be a sign buddy with you.   I have completed a 10 week beginners course and need to practice.  I am available from 4pm on most days.  Thank you.  Donna  
    • Hi everyone   I have just started to learn BSL and just over half way through the course. I am really enjoying it and would love to practice with a buddy. I can be quite flexible in days of the week and time. So, if anyone here is ambitious enough or looking for a buddy, I hope you will consider me. Thanks, Carole.
    • Hi, I am new to BSL and so pleased I made this decision to to learn this language. I work for myself using different kind of signs and imagery, and, whereby I do public and group speaking.  I hope, if I am good enough, to use it within my workplace where people many enjoy my service and benefit from it. I am just over half way through the course. I look forward to learning from other people's knowledge and experiences. best wishes, Carole.
    • Hi! I'm learning sign language for the first time ever. I'm a teacher and the reason I'm learning is to be able to communicate with Deaf people. There is someone I work with who is Deaf and so far they have had to write a lot down when we communicate. I also understand how frustrating it can get when you find it hard to get across your emotions with words, so I hope I can support others with their communication anxiety in the same way that I've felt it.
    • Hi there! I'm Phoebe, I'm 25 and I'm an actor living in London. I started learning BSL in the New Year as it's something I've always wanted to do and I'd love to be able to communicate with the d/Deaf community, especially in the performing arts industry. I recently saw the production of As You Like It at the Soho Place in London, which starred several Deaf actors (including Rose Ayling-Ellis) and their use of sign language and physicality really inspired me to learn to be able to lear
